CBD is short for cannabidiol, which is one of many compounds, called cannabinoids, that are found in the cannabis (hemp and marijuana) plant. Cannabidiol is one of over 120 known cannabinoids in the cannabis plant.
Cannabinoids are what gives the hemp plant its effects when consumed or applied to the human body, by interacting with the cannabinoid receptors that every human has. CBD has all the wellness benefits of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), the psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis, without producing the “high.” In other words, CBD is non-psychoactive but still offers all the benefits that the marijuana plant offers.
How is hemp different from marijuana and how is it used in your products?
Hemp is a breed of the cannabis plant that has less than .3% THC. Canazil uses only American sourced industrial hemp (which is legal in all states) to produce the CBD oil used in the products we produce.
CBD oil contains trace amounts of many other cannabinoids such as CBC, CBG and CBN – some even include trace amounts of THC. All of these cannabinoids working together create what is commonly called the “entourage effect”.
This entourage of cannabinoids work with the endocannabinoid system (your body’s natural infrastructure for interacting with cannabinoids) to produce positive effects on mood, energy, brain function, and overall well-being.
Why are we hearing so much about CBD and seeing it in all kinds of products?
CBD has become very popular due to the increase in knowledge and acceptance of its wellness benefits and non-psychoactive properties. Along with the myriad of scientific journals, studies and evidence indicating the same, Canazil has gathered a variety of successful testimonial usage of CBD for combating pain relief, sleep issues, anxiety, PTSD, skin conditions, and much more.
We encourage consumers to do their own research and consult their health care professionals for advice on the best options to pursue for their conditions.
How does CBD work?
Believe it or not, endocannabinoids are already naturally produced in the human body. These endocannabinoids bind to cannabinoid receptors to regulate mood, pain, sensation, appetite, and memory. Cannabinoid receptors are located all over the human body and are activated by naturally occurring or plant cannabinoids (hemp, marijuana).
When should my customers take CBD, and how much?
Many find taking CBD daily in the morning and before bed yields the best results. Dosage varies from individual to individual, and what works for one person may not work for another. Encourage your customers to do their own individual research to find the intake routine best for them.
